Default RV9 at Caspian Sea beach

A good friend of mine just reported first beach landing in his RV9. Greg Arehart's style. He is based near Makhachkala, Dagestan on Caspian Sea shore.





They don't have tides there but the winds could push water far enough to completely cover this sandy strip. Small tail wheel was sinking in the sand so Anatoly put a beer can under it. He said the amount of adrenaline was excessive. Congratulations Tolik. The Arctic Ocean beach looks the same








Wondering myself if my training wheel will dig in. At least I will have a recovery team...
